Ashley and I decided to attempt to grow some fruits and vegtables this summer, partly because it will save us some money and be good for us, but mostly for fun. After doing some research we decided to plant Cantalope, Watermelon, Onions, and Cucumbers. It was a nice sunny day about 90 degrees, so I did most of the manual labor, and Ashley planted the seeds and watered the bed really well. We will let you know how it goes!
3-2x6x8' Untreated boards (the treated kind can cause chemicals to contaminate your veggies)
